Comment (by tellyworth):

 A simple implementation of get_users_with_cap() is attached.  It doesn't
 cope with per-user capabilities, but there's a trivial way to implement
 that: drop per-user caps in favour of multiple roles.

 i.e. if I want a particular Contributor user to have an addition
 upload_files capability, I create a new Uploader role with the required
 cap, then assign both roles (Contributor, Uploader) to that user.  The
 code here can already handle this.
